The main good thing about the hotel is location. Close to highways and pretty easy to get to other popular areas nearby. If you're not planning on staying in the room this place is fine, but I still think it's a bit pricier than necessary.
It's not really a hotel, rather than a motel. You pull up right to your room. The room was kind of dirty and had a musty smell. You are forced to pay to park your car overnight which is an extra $20 a day.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a room upgrade to a room with a view of the pool in the 100 building which was perfect for us. The restaurant firefly was great... excellent dinner our first night there.
It was so very close to our destination
We saw roaches in the restroom and the kitchenette...
I loved the rooms!! They were nice and clean! (cleaning staff was very friendly) and I love the tropical feel to the hotel especially all the plant life around the property and on the patio areas!! Hung out there a lot!! Also loved all the pools!! my kids loved that!!!
I thought the hotel staff was a bit unknowledgeable especially up at the front desk!!!! Parking was ok during the day but once you left in the evening your spot was gone!?!? Didn't care for the Firefly we went and ate at Buffalo Wild Wings near by! (Amazingly cold beer!)
Beautiful grounds Friendly staff
Small closet Need more towel racks or hooks
Great location, went for a wedding
Basically a glorified motel paid way to much for what we got!
I really was completely surprised by how the views were in the bay. It was totally amazing and enjoyed all the pictures I was able to take with the wedding party. I requested clean sheets and a king size bed which was accommodated for with no issues. The Firefly restaurant staff was really nice and always willing to converse.
I arrived at about 2pm, already paid for and pre check online services. Stated my room wouldn't be ready until after 4 pm. My primary preference was a view of the harbor or the bay. I requested the room 4 months in advance. After the wedding/reception was over, I still didn't receive a phone call or email that my room was available. They also surprised me with another $20 for parking, would've been nice to know since I was renting a car and paying for that as well.
The location was great and easy to get to attractions and the beach from. Liked the Blue Pearl Restaurant for breakfast - fast service and a lot of food for the money. Wished it was open for dinner. After our experience at the Firefly, we had to change and get in the car and drive to a place to eat at night. It would have been nice to eat at the hotel.
Did not like the food at the Firefly restaurant. I would help if they had a better selection - especially one any aged kid would like. Spoke with others staying there and their experience was the same, couldn't find anything on the menu to order for the family, and when they did order - they were out of half of it! No bread, etc. Once you left your parking spot in the evening - you couldn't find one when you got back from dinner. They definitely need to have more parking!
The rooms were comfortable and nice. Plant life around the hotel was beautiful. Fire fly was delicious. Great pool for kids and adults. Nice location to missin beach
Not a lot of food choices. We went to blue pearl restaurant after your front office told us where it was, only to find out they were closed on Mondays, obviously the front desk lady didn't know that. I also mentioned it to the staff at fire fly and they had no idea either!!! I confirmed my reservation online and received a text stating he room would be ready at 3:00. I called to make sure and once again the front desk staff had no idea... They said they don't send out text messages lol. Funny because I got one, and even showed it to her! It said "the Dana on mission bay" I also asked the front desk staff for more creamer and she said she would have someone bring it to my room, I told her no, my whole family was still sleeping. She said " I don't know what to tell you then". I was also charged $14 for wifi and an expired coupon book I never used and/or asked for. I guess you could just say your front desk staff is horrible, the rest is great!!!
